The Mission of Tooele Valley Theatre is to provide a safe environment for the artists of Tooele Valley to have enriching theatrical experiences and to inspire, educate and entertain. 

About Us

Tooele Valley Theatre was conceptualized in October of 2020 by Chad Henwood, Emily Henwood, Brianna Lyman and Collin Ray. On paper anyways. The four of us have long dreamed of starting a year-round company in the valley to give artists and non-artists alike the opportunity to discover, explore and express their craft.


We all attended Tooele High School together at the start of the decade where we regularly dedicated most of our time to the arts around us. The four of us were involved in all different facets of art including theatre, stage crew, marching band, show choir, dance company and ballroom. We knew that the arts were going to be in our lives forever.


Brianna Lyman was accepted into the University of Utah's Musical Theatre BFA program. There she was involved in many productions and has since performed at Hale Center Theatre and with the Tabernacle Choir at Temple Square.


Emily Henwood began her Dance Education degree at Snow College and would later transfer to Southern Utah University where she was involved in many productions and concerts, including brand new debut productions at the Neil Simon Festival.


Chad Henwood started his Theatre degree in Arts Administration and Directing at Snow College and continued at SUU. There he acted regularly with the University and professionally with the Tony-Award winning Utah Shakespeare Festival.

Collin Ray served an LDS Mission in Argentina before returning home and starting training as a Journeyman Electrician in order to serve as a Head Technician in professional theatre. 


We all kept the arts in our futures because we knew we wanted to help others find the same magic we've found. We want you to be a part of our family. To explore and create, to laugh and cry, and create magic together. That's what we want Tooele Valley Theatre to be: A home where all this can happen. We hope to see you soon.
